Rattling and tapping noise that would come and go. Mechanic said it was the dirt shield in the wheel wells and tightened. Said he could still hear it some, but improved. Said suspension was o.k., though it sounds like a suspension noise to me. Will wait and see if it worsens, and if so, take it back.

After ordering parts, took car back again to have left strut, strut mount bearings, and strut mount replaced. Original spring, sway bare end link and bolts were re-used. This was the 4th time I've been to a VW dealership over this problem and no loaner, so missing days of work (I need a vehicle to conduct my work). Seemed to be o.k. after this last repair. Then... about a week later, when traveling very slow speed, as in a parking lot, heard a slight rattle or knocking sound starting again. Really?!?! Only audible when going slow over some less-than-smooth pavement. I do like the car overall, but I need reliability more than anything and refuse to pay out of pocket for a rental car on a $30,000+ car with less than 10,000 miles and plagued with factory defects. So... back again to the dealer and possibly contact VW of America. Same rattling sound from driver's side front (sounds like suspension malice not previously fixed. Different dealership. Mechanic said didn't hear it... nothing done. No provisions for a loaner. Decided to return to closer dealership since this one would not even shuttle me home (beyond 10 miles). Rattled the whole way home. Will make appt. with other VW dealer again (only 2 in my area).

replaced a fuse for auxillary power. Apparently it's common for the fuse to blow if using more than one device through a single USB adaptor. It took less than five minutes to replace.
